Folder rename in BI launchpad & impacts

Hello,

I have a requirement in renaming an existing folder to another name and just wanted to check if we do have any impact on the objects existing under the renamed folder?

Please suggest.

Thanks,

Vishal P.

    Hi Vishal,

    Renaming an existing folder to another name will not have any impact on the objects existing under the renamed folder. This is because the physical location of the objects are not dependant on the folder that contains it.

    • Hi Vishal,

      I think it should be the same, no impact.
      This is because the actual WebI documents FILE PATH is not the folder in BI Launch Pad, it is like this: frs://Input/a_175/021/000/5551/, and this does not change when you rename the folder name in BI Launch Pad.

      Best regards,
